"Well known for its extended spring seasons, Mammoth has a long tradition of operating well into the summer months, but has never announced an extension of this length of time, this early in the season. In short, this is likely to be the best spring skiing and riding the eastern sierra has ever seen," resort officials said.
Another powerful storm moved into SoCal Tuesday, with rain and mountain snow expected to continue throughout the day and into Wednesday, raising the risk of localized flooding. This is the 12th atmospheric river to hit the region in recent months.
